List of association footballers who died while playing

News Hub Creator

The following is a list of association footballers who died while playing, either directly from injuries sustained during a game, or after being taken ill on the pitch. Following an increase in deaths, [1] both during matches and training, the Federation of International Football Associations (FIFA) considered mandatory cardiac testing, [2] already in place for years in some countries, such as Italy. [3]

By 2009, FIFA player Pre-Competition Medical Assessment (PCMA) included family history, heart rhythm, sounds, and electrocardiogram (ECG) results. [4] The Union of European Football Associations (UEFA) required extensive medical tests, including ECG and

echocardiogram for players in the Europa League 2011–12. [5] Constant monitoring has been advised. [6]
